Monday Motivation #BestFoot

Happy Monday everyone!    Last week was a rather busy week.  I turned 37, spent time with the family, had some car troubles but found a silver lining in it, and now we are in March.  7 more weeks until April break.  But who's counting, right?  




Monday
3 easy miles after school.



Tuesday
3.5 miles.

Wednesday 
6.5 miles.



Thursday
6 miles on treadmill.
3.81 miles at 7:52 pace with 2.18 miles cool down.



Friday
My birthday!
7 miles on the treadmill.




Saturday
7 miles on the treadmill.  1 mile at speed for Happy Fit Mama's - Happy Fit March Challenge.  
I was a bit stressed by a flat tire incident.  Hopefully my mechanic will take care of it first thing tomorrow and I'll have my car back.  Fingers crossed.



Sunday
6.2 miles outside!



Total:  39.2 miles.  Great base building and confidence building.

I've also incorporated a new training program that focuses on form.  Last week was week 1 of the training with an emphasis on arm movements and heel life.  It's a 6 week program, focusing on improving your form, increasing your speed and preventing injuries.  I know my form needs help.  

So far, what I'm liking about this program: 

  • 4 sessions/week
  • strength and stretching incorporated
  • videos demonstrating each technique drill, strength exercise 
  • It is very easy to incorporate this program to your existing plans, whatever they may be.  
I'm looking forward to this week to see what new levels I can get to!  and to getting my car back!
